Great Translation- Still Don’t Like Him

The Odyssey

Homer/ Translated by: Emily Wilson

So I decided to reread this solely because of the translation- apparently the first in English by a woman. Also because I was in a serious Black Sails mood and had sea-faring pirate vibes going.

Having read a messy, broken hard to follow translation in college (or high school? I just remember being annoyed) I thought I’d give this a go. It’s a great translation but man I still hate Odysseus and his son!
